Hence, 165 is divisible by 5.
(v) 120
In 120, the unit’s place digit is 0.
Hence, 120 is divisible by 5.
2. Consider the following numbers which are not divisible by 5, using the rules of divisibility by 5: 54, 77, 106, 127, 152.
Note: A number is divisible by 5 if the digit in the units place is 5 or 0.
Solution:
(i) 54
In 54, the unit’s place digit is 4.
Hence, 54 is not divisible by 5.
(ii) 77
In 77, the unit’s place digit is 7.
Hence, 77 is not divisible by 5.
(iii) 106
In 106, the unit’s place digit is 6.
Hence, 106 is not divisible by 5.
(iv) 127
In 127, the unit’s place digit is 7.
Hence, 127 is not divisible by 5.
(v) 152
In 152, the unit’s place digit is 2.
Hence, 152 is not divisible by 5.
